Randolph’s final Guest Artist Series concert of the season will focus on the work of American female composers, in recognition of Women’s History Month.
Roger McVey, a piano professor at the Lionel Hampton School of Music at the University of Iowa, will perform the work of Wyn-Anne Rossi, Emma Lou Diemer, Libby Larsen, and Caroline Shaw, the youngest recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in Music (2013).
The concert, set for 3 p.m. Saturday, March 21, in Wimberly Recital Hall, is free and open to the public.
“We’re really pleased to have Roger McVey return to our guest artist series,” said Emily Yap Chua, professor of music and director of the series. “He’s a dynamic and engaging performer, and this program is a continuation of our commitment to diverse representation in the music department’s performances and programming.”
McVey, a “fervent advocate of contemporary music,” is a past prizewinner in the International Beethoven Competition and was a semi-finalist in the International Franz Liszt Competition in Poland. He can be heard on numerous recordings, including his most recent release, Music of Henryk Gorecki, out this spring.
